Hi Bobs and Nicki - I am so so so so sorry I haven't been on and spoken to you guys. Since I last signed on a week ago when I was down about how dh was feeling I have chatted with him and we are A - OK but I have also had a busy busy week.
Bobs I am sorry I was not around last week when you were feeling down. My sis in law found out she was pg the same week we found out dh had
-ve sperm analysis. Like yours, my sis in law didn't want to tell us but my brother said no way were we finding out from someone else. It must have been really hard for her but its not her fault. Like you I found it so hard. Well done you for visiting your friends baby without tears! You should give yourself a huge pat on the back
After I visit my good friends wee one who is 7 weeks old, I always cry
We are going again tonight to see them. I am just hoping and praying I can come home and have no tears - I am on hols this week with dh and don't want to spoil my nice time off
How bad is this, even thought of not visiting this week for that reason but my friend has invited us over for dinner and I so want us not to grow apart thro all of this so I didn't want to say no.
I have never heard of HCG shos to improve sperm count. Any time I hear about anything like this I think..." might be worth a try ...." but then I remember that dh's lab results showed no evidence that he has ever produced sperm
so for us I think there would need to be a miracle for us to have dh's biological child.
Dh and I had a good chat and like both of your dh's, he 200% sure this is the road for us but he says it all feels a bit numb and clinical right now so its hard to feel excited. Going to take your advice Nicki and not get too excited infront of dh - will just get excited on here!
Bobs like you I always tell dh this is our problem, not his. He also said he does feel guilty that its me who has to go thro all this.... I keep telling him its the least of my worries. All I want is that BFP, like we all do.
How was your night out Bobs?? I get like you, really excited befor a girlie night out with a good friend. I have been craving those sorts of nights more and more recently. Think I need to keep reminding myself my life is good (even without a baby). I think its really really important to try and stay grounded and remind yourself of what you have and what is good in your life. Also I seem to want to keep surrounding myself with friends who aren't going to do the whole baby chat thing!
Dh and I went to Little Britain last night. We stayed over in Glasgow (40 miles from Edinburgh) and had dinner and some vino
beforehand. It was lovely
Today we have been together for exactly 12 years..... can't believe its that long!!
Nicki - I am using clomid (or something similar) too with my diui. I was told that if I produced more than 2 follies they could aspirate the remaining one(s) and carry on with the cycle. The consultant said that OHSS has never happened tho in this unit. Do you have that option? I was also given 10% risk/ chance of having twins. Did you get any stats like that?
Well take care luvvies and will try and keep my posts more frequent. I'll sign off here xxxx
